You don’t go with much expectation to watch this film, but you leave the multiplex a bit surprised that the movie did manage to raise a few laughs. And credit for this turn around should go to Rajpal Yadav who single-handedly steers the film from stagnating to a mundane comedy. With his experience and expertise he lifts the film a few notches higher. However, with not much support coming from the other cast, it gets lost somewhere.
But this is not to say that the entire support cast was mediocre. Frankly speaking, the writer left no scope for the others with Rajpal hogging the limelight and Sanjay Mishra coming a close second. If things were put in proper perspective, Chandrakant Singh would have had a surprise hit on his hand. Had a little more pain been taken to develop the relationship between the two couples (The other couple being Ashish Chowdhary (Prem) and Amrita Arora (Khushi), the story would have been quite different. All said and done, you can safely say that this has been the most entertaining film of the year, so far.
The film is about marriage and the problems that come along due to misunderstandings. Fed up of his marriage with Neha Dhupia (Shanti), and envious of the lifestyle of his bachelor colleague and his live-in relationships, Rajpal Yadav (Santosh), starts imagining romances which gets him into a lot of trouble and finally into a police station.
The comedy at most times is never over-the-top and credit to this, once again goes to Rajpal, who I guess, does not know how to overact - his act is clean and flawless.
Anupam Kher and Rati Agnihotri have nothing of note. Amrita Arora does not have much to do and one expected much more from Aashish, especially after he put up a good performance in DHAMAAL and a negative role in Vikram Bhatt’s SPEED. As for Neha Dhupia, her husband leaves her no room to perform, as automatically, whenever he walks into a frame all eyes are focused on him.
To go or not: This movie will do well in the interiors of the country, where the front benchers will have a fairly good time with Rajpal’s comedy. In the cities, I’m afraid; it will not get much of an audience.
